Documentary Photography has always been close to my heart, especially so in the past couple of years. Singapore has changed so much and is still changing so quickly that I firmly believe that I, as a photographer and a son of this land, have the moral obligations to our next generations to preserve images of Singapore that will be gone forever.
Built in 1932, the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station is the showpiece of the KTM Railway System within Singapore and is located along Keppel Road.
Quite inevitably, road signs and other markers associated with the Railway Station will be changed or removed.
The bus-stops will also be affected. Will this bus-stop be renamed to “Former Railway Stn”, or what?
The fencing on this side of the Station looks simple and easily “penetrable” – in total contrast with the high-security fencing found in Singapore’s governmental buildings. I am reminded of the simplicity and innocence of an age gone by.
On this side of the Station, there are several entrances that lead, via eating places or corridors, into the main hall of the Station.
